Earth Day Cleanup A Success

More than 100 volunteers dusted off their work gloves and boots for MyRWA’s annual Earth Day River Cleanup held on April 30. Meeting at DCR Torbert MacDonald Park in Medford groups fueled up on coffee donated by Starbucks before heading out to pick-up litter throughout the park. Meanwhile, with the help of MA-DCR staff, the Tufts Football team battled the climbing invasive vine, Oriental bittersweet. By the end of the day a truck load of trash was collected and we had filled the chipper with plant material. Thanks to all who attended the event! Funding was generously provided by the Tufts University Neighborhood Service Fund.
